Over-policed and underserved communities need economic and social empowerment, not incarceration. In schools, students are penalized instead of mentored and educated. In courtrooms, offenders receive harsh sentences and no offer of rehabilitation. In jails and prisons, those preparing for release don’t receive the supports they need to productively re-enter society. When it comes to the problem of mass incarceration, prevention may trump treatment.
